Hello blog readers,
Recently, the MarComm interns got to visit Twice and Twitter headquarters. We took a day trip to San Francisco to have fun and absorb as much information as we could. The experience was incredible!
We went to the Twice headquarters first, a small yet fashionable building. For all of you who have not heard of this company, Twice is basically an online consignment store, operating from their website and smart phone app. Through Twice, people can both sell their clothes to the company and buy from the site. In fact, all the clothes that Twice sells are clothes they have bought from their users. Rather than wasting the clothes, this is a neat way to up-cycle unwanted clothing and get a new wardrobe. The other girls and I felt this was a fantastic idea that would indeed flourish to become a larger and more well-known company. Since the idea is different, yet ingenious, this company may even become as large a Twitter one day.
When we visited the Twitter office, we were able to see a distinct difference between the headquarters of a start-up company and a well-established company—both were amazing. Twitter is a very large building consisting of many floors, each centered around a different aspect of the company such as communications, media, or engineering. While we were there, we were able to talk to some of the employees about how they came to work at Twitter. We discussed their life experiences and how their education led them to this company. Their answers all centered around the fact that their major did not impact their current job, but their experience and love for learning definitely did. We left that building knowing that as long as you love what you do, success will find you.
Overall, the day was productive, fun, and filled with new experiences we would have never had if it weren’t for this Girl Scout internship.
